Two further days at sea follow as your ship continues on to Madeira. Portugal’s ‘Garden Island’ boasts beautiful botanical gardens such as the Monte Palace Tropical Garden, unique walking trails which showcase spellbinding lush-green landscapes, and impressive natural wonders including Cabo Girão – Europe’s highest cape. The Atlantic Ocean views on offer from Cabo Girão never fail to enthral. Funchal is your gateway to it all, although you could choose to stay in Madeira’s capital and enjoy afternoon tea at the famous Reid’s Hotel. Finally, it’s on to Tenerife in the sun-kissed Canaries. You’ll disembark Boudicca in Santa Cruz, but not before having time to discover attractions such as the mysterious Pyramids of Güímar; or scale Mount Teide – Spain’s highest peak – on an unforgettable adventure. For a relaxing conclusion to your holiday, you could opt to indulge in a spot of sunbathing at your pick of island’s inviting beaches.
